NEW YORK (AP) — CBS is making a few nips and tucks to network television’s most successful schedule, including adding a comedy with Robin Williams playing an unorthodox advertising executive with Sarah Michelle Gellar as his daughter.

The network’s fall schedule will included four new comedies and one new drama. CBS ordered only eight new series for the entire season, reflecting its success as TV’s top network by a wide margin.

CBS said Wednesday it is moving the drama “Person of Interest” from Thursday to Tuesday nights, meaning TV’s three top-rated dramas this year will run back-to-back-to-back on the schedule. “Hawaii Five-0” shifts from Monday to Friday nights.

The network is canceling “CSI: N.Y.,” ”Vegas,” ”Golden Boy” and “Rules of Engagement.”
